Did I Call It or What?

Okay, so I wasn't the only person to guess this was going to happen but it did nonetheless. Someone is suing Rockstar because they were a lazy parent.

Isn't it how interesting our society works? I mean stealing cars, cold blooded murder, and other crimes are okay to expose kids to but sex isn't? I mean honestly, if they were going to censor anything shouldn't it be the other way around. I mean think about it, on one hand we have something that typically hurts people and then in the other we have something that is required for the perpetuation of the species and is a perfectly normal thing to do. But no, it is better little Timmy sees gangsters shooting cops than a naked woman; gimme a break.

As mentioned in the article's editor comments and like I said in my previous post on this topic, people are just lazy and don't think they should be accountable for it. She is going irate because there is this stuff in there that she doesn't want her 14 year-old grandson to see yet the game was rated 17+ originally. Like I said before, if you are willing to buy something like that for someone who is under age to play it, you accept the responsibility that they are going to see some mature subject matter.

"They should really make sure this doesn't happen again. The least this company can do is offer refunds," said Laurence D. Paskowitz, the lawyer who filed the lawsuit on behalf of Cohen. Paskowitz added that no parent would purchase an "AO"-rated game for a child.

Oh, so they pay attention if the game says "Adults Only" but if it says "Mature" they totally blow off why it was rated so? The only reason they are saying that is that most stores don't sell AO games and then parents don't have to be accountable for being lazy and buying a game that isn't targeted at this 14 year-old kid.
